What is the best way to create a garden space on a terrace?

I live on the 11th floor with a terrace, and I would love to have a small garden-like area. We do have high winds occasionally, so any kind of greenhouse is out. I would like to see about incorporating pallets, if that was a doable option. I would like to grow flowers, plants and vegetables, that are specifically for my area (Brooklyn NY).
